"What is God, through the Spirit, calling me to do for Christ's Kingdom?"

A Psychology or Research Practicum can help you to discern your calling.

Our students have engaged in the following kinds of practicum experiences...

  • Alcohol and substance abuse programs

  • Child and adolescent treatment programs

  • Inpatient psychiatric programs

  • Residential care programs

  • School and workshop-based MRDD programs

  • Social service / child protective service programs

  • Shelters and half-way houses

Our students have co-authored refereed research articles and/or book chapters with faculty:
